About Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP:

Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP is a full-service law firm that offers clients the national reach and sophisticated experience of a large firm and the local connections and value of a boutique firm. Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr’s team of cybersecurity professionals (including 11 Certified Information Privacy Professionals) works collaboratively to ensure that our clients are supported at all stages and from all angles – from response planning for cyber-attacks, to crisis management during an occurrence, to proceeding after a cyber-attack or breach occurs. Our interdisciplinary approach means that attorneys in different legal fields – corporate, insurance, intellectual property, labor and employment, white collar, and litigation – provide clients with well-rounded, innovative solutions.

On the preparedness side, our team is experienced at reviewing security incident response plans and working with security specialists to review and identify technology weaknesses on behalf of clients. If the client does not yet have a plan in place, our attorneys will outline procedures and develop a plan to help prepare the client for an external attack and reduce the risk of future intrusions. In the event of an attack or breach, our attorneys and network of external professionals work together to minimize exposure and protect client confidences. We counsel clients on liabilities potentially associated with the attack or breach and represent clients in related litigation when needed. Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr is a corporate member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
